Isabella Rossellini is ballsy. She is an actor, model, writer and mother, whose career choices are character driven and reflect a wide range of female personalities, which is not easy for women to accomplish in Hollywood. Early on, we knew her as gorgeous and deranged in Blue Velvet and in recent years, she proved to be light and hilarious in guest appearances on Friends and 30 Rock.
Isabellaâ€™s latest project called Green Porno is a quirky example of thinking outside of the Hollywood typecasting box. Itâ€™s a series of short videos where she portrays the mating rituals of animals. She writes, produces and acts in these videos that are featured on the Sundance Channel. Rather than play grandmotherly roles in big budget films, Isabella has dedicated her efforts to these educational shorts, which help raise awareness for the environment and show appreciation for the creatures that walk, feast, and mate on this earth.
As I said, sheâ€™s ballsy. It takes guts to dress up as a squid and talk about ink squirting from your anus. Then again, she is a mother, and we can be pretty stinkinâ€™ brave. Because once youâ€™ve shit on yourself in childbirth with a camcorder or camera capturing the blessed event, embarrassment is no longer part of your lexicon.
“I can say i love you with my whole 3 hearts.”
